The production was seen in May 2013 at New Jersey's McCarter Theatre Center and the original cast returns to Off-Broadway, featuring Jessie Austrian as Baker’s Wife, Noah Brody as Lucinda, Wolf & Cinderella’s Prince, Paul L. Coffey as Mysterious Man, Andy Grotelueschen as Milky White, Florinda & Rapunzel’s Prince, Liz Hayes as Cinderella’s Stepmother & Jack’s Mother, Claire Karpen as Cinderella & Granny, Jennifer Mudge as Witch, Patrick Mulryan as Jack & Steward, Ben Steinfeld as Baker and Emily Young as Little Red Ridinghood & Rapunzel.

Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, who directed the Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Tony Award-winning musical in 2013 and again at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, CA, repeat their work Off-Broadway.

Here's how the production is billed: "With only 10 actors, one piano and boundless imagination, this witty and wildly theatrical re-invention is Into the Woods like you've never seen it before! This stripped-down, unplugged, thrillingly clever new version includes all the dazzling classic songs like 'Children Will Listen' and 'Giants in the Sky.' Mind the wolf, heed the witch and honor the giant at this extraordinary musical about the power of wishes and what happens when they really do come true."

Performances run through to March 22 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.
